Can .pro files test for commercial vs. oss licenses?  If so, and you create a non-Qt project repo, couldn't some .pro in qtbase retrieve licheck, like QtCreator does here: http://code.qt.io/cgit/qt-creator/qt-creator.git/tree/qtcreator.pro#n123?

Is that an acceptable solution?  Seems like it would work here, although I think the time stamp generation and commercial licenses would need to be added to qtbase (I think).
